There is no question here. Get this app now. Quell was similarly FAOTD back in April and it took has a 4.8-star Google Play average.

There is a Quell Reflect app in the iOS App Store priced at $1.99. It has 5 stars overall, and in the current version, too.

It's a better-than-normal app for the Amazon Appstore. In general we continue to be disappointed with the FAOTD program. It began promisingly enough, with Angry Birds Rio, but we've gotten tired of the endless games or niche apps, and especially apps which have no uptake in Google Play, and seem to be FAOTD as a desperation move by the developer. We'd like to see free versions of say, Office-compatible software or useful utilities such as CalenGoo instead of niche apps or endless games.
